    ACC trying to save face after Va Tech gets upset today and it hasn't started well at all.

    Wow, if the consensus best team in the ACC gets beat by the team picked to finish 4th or 5th in the SEC the ACC is looking pretty weak.

    Not only that, but the favorite to meet Clemson in the ACC championship game lost to a non-BCS school today. :lol:

    That's dead on. Bama looks way tougher than the tigers.

    I really hate both of these teams. We should have beat Alabama last year and the Clemson fans were giant douchebags at the Champs Sports Bowl a few years ago. Is there a way they can both lose???

    Man this is making Colorado look good I think. We played Alabama tough in the second half. I know this is a new year but this makes Colorado look good.

    The ACC has the grand total of ZERO BCS Bowl wins in the past 8 years. Adding Miami and VTech turned out JUST GREAT for the conference.

    The ACC is very much overrated. I like the fact that smaller schools Wva, E. Carolina...etc all get the players who werent "good" enough to play at a "big time" ACC school.

    Damn CJ Spiller is fast. That'll change the game quick.

    I was kind of thinking that myself. Hopefully we come out and show that same kind of improvement. Although I am also beginning to believe that the Clemson hype train departed a little too early

    I think when you come into a year with CJ Spiller as THE MAN, and he gets 2 carries, it's time to consider a new coach.

    (I always think back to that bama championship in the early 70s, don't remember exact year, which they won after voting as a team NOT to play NU...)

    Spiller and Davis were considered to be one the top RB tandems in the country, and they only end up with 20 yards rushing. :huh: Yes ACC, you're off to a horrendous start:

    and there's *that man* again....

    (in addition to picking a star player and calling him by his first name....throughout the game: the Major, "Chris" (Simms), "Jason" (White), "Reggie" (Bush)....etc. there was something vaguely uncomfortable/homoerotic about listening to "Brent" do a UT game with Simms.)
